If you have ideas of where you would like to see paths, trails, sidewalks etc., let us know. This will be very helpful to the citizen committee. If there is a specific style of path you like, consider posting a picture. Examples from other cities are welcome. Keep it up!

Paving the Eastern canal from Broadway to McKellips would be awesome! I really like the asphalt paving on the new stadium connector rather than concrete.

Also, installing a canal crossing at Horne and Inca Streets would be awesome!

I believe a crossing at Horne and Inca streets should be a high priority. This because high speed traffic runs through their, and there is no island in the middle of the road to stop and wait for traffic to clear.

Thank you for your idea! The City Council and leadership agree that the 25 acres on the southwest corner of University and Mesa Drives needs to be amazing! To that end, the Council directed City staff to conduct public engagement to help guide future development. The outreach was conducted June-August 2016 and consisted of an online survey and in-person neighborhood meetings. We received nearly 2,000 responses to this outreach effort! The results of the outreach were presented to City Council in November 2016 (video of Council presentation: mesa11.com/vod/?show=1466&Mode...) and included City Council direction to prepare options for next steps to develop the vision and a master plan that are consistent with the following guiding principles:

Future development of University and Mesa drives:
- Provides a significant market-rate residential component (for sale and rental)
- Develops in an urban form
- Is sensitive to the Wilbur Historic District
- Provides a variety of building types and uses
- Provides high-quality design and construction
- Activates and supports the downtown core
- Provides a connected pedestrian environment
- Provides neighborhood supporting non-residential uses that complement downtown core

Starting later this year, the City will be hiring an urban design consultant to prepare conceptual master plan(s) and market feasibility analyses that will become the basis for developing the property. Development of the conceptual master plans will be an open and public process, in which we encourage all interested people to participate. Updates on the conceptual master planning process and how you can continue to participate will be posted on the Downtown Transformation webpage: www.mesaaz.gov/about-us/city-p....

I agree. West Mesa seems to have a very low priority with the council. Why can't Fiesta mall be developed as a university annex with classrooms, dorms and restaurants and entertainment instead of its being a white elephant which is drawing nearby property prices down.

Your website is changing what people write and is making us all look ignorant.

I want the youth to have free access to public transportation in Mesa.
Mesa is a family-friendly city. Often, the cost of transit limits how and when families can take trips together. By providing free transit to youth under 17 years of age, the city will be encouraging many opportunities for children and families to enrich their lives. This initiative supports school attendance, trips to free cultural events and museums, as well as, the many parks, pools, and recreation facilities, which are world-class. This effort will foster and train our children to use this sustainable transportation mode before they are adults. Affordability is a major issue facing large cities across America and transportation is a major cost element often lost to the detriment of kids. Please support a city that values it children and gives them free access to the many opportunities afforded in Mesa, Arizona.

Having this flexibility as you describe for families to travel more can be a positive way of attraction for our City. However, I'm not entirely sure how many seats are usually filled throughout the day by re occurring passengers. Having a sudden surge of young passengers may disrupt a few things for those that depend on it daily. If this could possible become an issue, then a simple solution would be having more buses on transit. But in turn would cost more financially if more buses are needed and new drivers are to be hired. Just brainstorming possible scenarios of this action. I love the idea though!

I am interested in this idea, however I don't think free is the way to go. Discounted would be more feasible, especially related to Frank's comment, above.
I volunteered for six years at a community center in Chandler, as well as at the library earlier this year, and I have seen firsthand how a few bad eggs (teens/children) could spoil something for everyone. I see this good idea turning into something negative. Sure, some would use it for good (school events, parks and rec. etc.) but I foresee many issues with this idea.

I want more hazardous waste drop off days with longer hours in Mesa.
Additional hazardous drop off days and hours would decrease the amount placed in the regular trash bins.
